Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 131
Description He "stood severe in youthful beauty," and let the Mormon pontiff help him dress. We left Bellevue under a cold gray cloud, in the shadow of the cliffs that overhung the valley. There was at first a gradual ascent to overcome. When it was surmounted, we found the sun was two hours high, and the view suddenly burst upon us of a vast field of mountaintops, -a medley of shapes and colors. These were the last of the Wahsatch RangeY5 We were coming down to the Rio Virgin and Great Colorado country, descend- ing successive stages of levels, and changing the geological for- mation in which we were as we did so. After this, I was to see the supreme wonders of Arizona; but I could never again experi- ence the bewildered admiration I felt that day. No one had pre- pared me for such a scene. The Mormons had kept it back as a surprise for T., who, when he passed up Utah from California, had come by the old Mormon Trail, by way of the Vegas de Sta. Clara, to Cedar City. Far ofi in the east rose a chain of lofty mountains, their sides striped with party-colored bands, terrace on terrace, to what seemed a great city; its golden buildings crowning the summit. Behind its palaces the white towers of a cathedral appeared. The glowing colors were heightened by the snowy covering of still more distant peaks; some so remote as to be only faintly visible against the iridescent sky. The sun was now shining upon them in full splendor. 65Mrs. Kane is mistaken. The Wasatch Mountains terminate at Mt. Nebo to the east of Nephi in Juab County. The range she was describing was the Pine Valley Mountains that tower over the valley to the north of St. George and to the west of the route they traveled from Kanarraville to St. George.
